With 10ha touching the Montagne de Reims planted 85% to Pinot Meunier, the Salmon family shows justifiable pride in Champagne’s ‘third’ variety: red summer fruits, floral and spicy notes with zest and suppleness to finish clean and dry, thanks to a low 7g/l dosage.
Red wine has a beautiful purple color with deep violet hues. On the nose, we find the fruity promise of the dress: blackcurrant berries, tangy red berries and fresh citrus fruits. The palate is light and fruity, true to the nose and slightly tannic. The barrel offers spicy notes nicely melted. This 2015 vintage can be served as an aperitif, on grilled white meat or barbecue.
Our 2015 white Chaumuzy offers the taster a deep golden hue, slightly frosted. The nose is opulent and rich, unexpected power on a white wine. Woody notes dominate fresh citrus zest (kumquat, pomelo) and will tend to round and blend over time. Brioche notes with candied citrus and dried fruits will then take over.
This champagne displays a rather dense and luminous colour, of pale and clear straw yellow, with reflections of golden yellow and silvery shimmers. The champagne is animated by its fine and vivacious bubbles, which make up the delicate collar. The visual sensation indicates a lush and fresh wine.
The 2012 Club Meunier Special Cuvée is a rich and fresh Champagne, with a great harmony and a depth of fruit balanced by a high quality minerality. We suggest a tasting temperature between 9 and 14 ° C.

96 Points – James Halliday Wine Companion 2016 "Small batch-fermented in French oak (18.5% new) on lees for 7 months with light battonage. The combination of high quality cool grown grapes and sensitive winemaking has produced this lovely chardonnay, the first release of a chardonnay in the Senses range. Delicacy teams with intensity (an oxymoron if ever there was one), grapefruit, white peach and nectarine the drivers, not the oak."
Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc of the Year - 2018 Melbourne International Wine Competition
Silver Medal – 2017 Wine Show of Western Australia
The blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon is one of the classic Margaret River wine styles. The Sauvignon Blanc in this wine displays tropical fruit and citrus aromas which are complemented by the grassy nuances of Semillon. On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant showing passion fruit characters with a lingering crisp finish.
91 Points - Campbell Mattinson (Wine Companion)
Excellent intensity. Lemongrass and ripe stone fruit flavours meet gravel and sweat. Super fresh and lively. Textural finish.
A portion of our 2011 Viognier was fermented in French oak with the balance fermented in tank. The result is a style with intense and complex aromas of frangipani, apricot candied citrus and spice.
This wine displays the classic varietal characteristics of Viognier, with a viscous, creamy mouthfeel highlighted by textured cashew nuts on the finish.
